Statistics for debts registered with SPER

Debts can start with unpaid fines and penalties, and can be referred to us by various agencies:

  • Courts include magistrates, district and supreme court monetary orders, which may include fines payable to the state government or to third parties for compensation, restitution, costs, etc. Offender levies are also included in this category.
  • State government includes government departments, and those agencies that do not pay a registration fee when referring a penalty—such as Electoral Commission Queensland, Department of Transport and Main Roads (including fines issued by Queensland Police Service, Road Safety Camera Office and Queensland Rail), Office of Liquor and Gaming Regulation, and Department of Environment and Heritage Protection. Monies collected are generally retained by the state.
  • Other includes all local government authorities (i.e. councils) and other agencies that pay a registration fee when referring a penalty; such as universities, some hospital boards and port authorities. The fines collected are transferred back to the agencies.

See below monthly statistics about SPER debt. You can also see a breakdown of debts, top 10 offences and payments received by statistical area in Queensland.
